Seems the "mostly peaceful" protesters broke into a locked gate and trespassed onto private property, then threatened the property owner with death, arson, and various other crimes. I'm not sure exactly if those threats were made before or after he displayed the AR-15. The couple doesn't appear to have cellphone video of the event, but hopefully the house has security cameras that can help establish the timeline, and not just the selective video of the trespassers.

I guess the moral of the story is to keep the weapons hidden until the protesters start breaking into your house and attacking, then defend yourself in accordance with the law...?

No worries you are in Florida.

I guess it is like those John Wayne movies when they know the Indians are gonna attack. You put the weapons by the window until they get close enough then pick them off one by one.

"Peaceful protestors" that tore down an iron gate to storm private property. Possibly at least two were armed and approached the McCloskeys. Their lives were threatened, as well as their dog and their property.

That is criminal behavior, but the victims are on trial because a militant fascist thug has power.

Uhhh, yeah. Never mind what I said. They're clearly very wealthy.

What will they be charged with, self-defense, protection of private property, failure to allow a criminal mob to take over their private neighborhood?

You got that right. The governor just gave an order for wearing masks come Monday. I figure I better watch John Wayne movies before the left condemns his films.

Reminds me of the old adage about being the first to call the police after an altercation, whether fair or not the first to call is often viewed as the victim vs the perpetrator. In hindsight maybe they would’ve been better off calling first then bringing out the guns as a last resort, even if the law technically allows for immediate defense. And the prosecutor is a low life scumbag lest anyone think I’m defending them at all.

Chellim’s post of the article on the Faust mansion was really revealing.
The contents of the house are priceless.
Too bad the McCloskeys used poor judgement out of fear, brandishing their guns in the yard instead of staying inside; but also see how it would be hard to defend that place.
I understand they called the police and the police didn’t respond.

I found an article on Kim Gardner and her railroading of former governor Greitens.
Link

You locals know all about this, but she sounds like a lawyer’s version of Al Sharpton.

It was clear from the video that neither McCloskey nor his wife had any idea how to hold, let alone use a firearm.

Perhaps best to do that before posing for a sea of cell phone cameras looking stupid.

Standing in front of his house with the rifle at his hip, rambo style, he looked like a scared rabbt with a stick. Not really intimidating, and his wife was lucky she didn't shoot herself.

Their house didn't get broken into or vandalized and the protesters seems to stay off their lawn. I think they looked stupid too but it worked. Hopefully after this incident they will get the training they need. Tony Cowden offered to give them free classes.

They both muzzle swept each other and she had her finger on the trigger. Apparently the pistol was nonfunctional. It is not that I am a Pro, but I have had considerable training and these things were pounded into my head.

Oh for F's sake. Enough of this high-horse bullshit. We get it. They're not gun folks. Who gives a shit? That's not the point even in the least.

And I don't think they used any poor judgment. Not at all. Not considering the situation they were in at that exact moment with the shit they just witnessed in St. Louis with the cops doing absolutely nothing.

I applaud them. Even if they are stinking Democrats.

Nothing will happen to them it's just grandstanding on the part of one of George Soros's cronies. Just another waste of tax payers money.

Totally agree. Considering one of the BLM/Antifa protestors killed someone two blocks from their house the night before and of course no one saw anything. By them showing everyone that they weren't going to put up with the b.s. I think it showed the country that most people, even ultra liberal democrats were sick of the nonsense.

I think the fact that they were democrats made the point hit home even more as they couldn't be passed off as some gun loving Trump supporters ready to fire on black people (the crowd was 90% white).

Will be on Watter's World next segment...



"Some things are apparent. Where government moves in, community retreats, civil society disintegrates and our ability to control our own destiny atrophies. The result is: families under siege; war in the streets; unapologetic expropriation of property; the precipitous decline of the rule of law; the rapid rise of corruption; the loss of civility and the triumph of deceit. The result is a debased, debauched culture which finds moral depravity entertaining and virtue contemptible."

So while I believe it's bullshit in concept, it appears to be another leftist being eaten by his own.

Outside of a few sheriffs, have you seen this happen a single time during all of this?


All of what? The protests? The ‘Rona? Can you cite when they didn’t? Seen a few PD’s and police unions telling the politicians/city admin. they were not going to follow unlawful orders. Or call in with the “blue flu”.
